Disable the Application Error Reporting tool DW20.exe

Filed under: Misc — stefanprodan @ 12:38 pm

If you are working with a debugger like the VS.NET 2005 one and you are trying to raise errors to see how your application acts the DW20.exe will eat up all your resources to send the annoying reports to Microsoft. Even if I disable the Error Reporting service from the service mmc it didn’t solved the problem so I’ve found this on msdn and it finally worked.

To disable the Application Error Reporting tool, add a DWReportee value of 1 to following registry keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW
Description of the Windows Error Reporting tool (Dw20.exe)
